Today we are wrapping up what has been a spectacular series of cooking classes this fall. Starting at the end of September, Farm Steward Alice Martin began exploring seasonal cooking with West Side youth. Over the 9 week series the class has utilized a fresh fall harvest of brussels sprouts, squash, kale, collards, peppers, tomatoes, basil, and even apples (from Alice’s orchard). One of the most memorable classes was the week of Halloween, where we created peanut butter and pretzel spiders and peanut butter – white chocolate eye balls to accompany our meal of corn bread, butternut squash, brussels sprouts, and greens with chicken. The past 2 months have been very tasty.
